Love, Gilda

Love, Gilda

An intimate portrait honoring comedy legend Gilda Radner, LOVE, GILDA celebrates the Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian who became a cultural icon the moment audiences first laughed with her on Saturday Night Live’s debut episode. A trailblazer for female comedians, and women everywhere, her impact on the entertainment industry has endured almost four decades.

Directed by first-time feature filmmaker Lisa D’Apolito, LOVE, GILDA is told in Radner’s own words and in her own voice through journal entries, never-before-heard audio recordings and interviews with friends and those inspired by her, among them: Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman, Lorne Michaels and Alan Zweibel. The movie captures a complex woman who lived her life with an exuberant and joyful spirit even as she battled demons and cancer. Radner continues to inspire people to stay positive and to keep laughing no matter what challenges life brings.
